I want select a material, which already is define, of en object by using script.

How can I do that?

Example: This works but make everytime a new material. (Material.001, Material.002, ect..)

object = bpy.data.objects['Cube']

mat = bpy.data.materials.new("Material") 
print (mat)
me = object.data
  • $\begingroup$ mat = bpy.data.materials.get("Material") or bpy.data.materials.new("Material") $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Jan 2 at 14:58

I have solved the problem by:

#***Set color***
D = bpy.data
Color_material = D.materials["Material"]
cube = D.objects['Cube']
cube.active_material = Color_material

    $\begingroup$ Slight issue here if material named Material doesn't exist, will throw a key error. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Jan 2 at 14:59
